It is polite to say “Please pay attention to the following: ...” in email? It is polite to say “Please pay attention to the following: ...” in email? or it should be "Please note that....."? Any different? Thank you:)

"Please note" is more polite. It's possible to interpret "please pay attention" as a reprimand. And since there are less verbal clues in written correspondence, it's best to avoid misunderstandings.

I don't think there is any major difference between these two sentences, but if I were to write the email, I would use "please note that" rather than "please pay attention to the following." I feel "please note that" sounds more professional and polite.

"Please note that....."? Sounds a bit better, a bit more friendly kind of formal Feel free to add me as a friend if you need more help as your buttons don't work ^_^

It's not very polite, and as stated earlier it might lead to Big misunderstandings. you might try capitalizing the portions of your email that you feel require more attention
